2:17 am
ladies room and you walk in and put it on the hook so it won't get dirty. you sit, you do your business, before you watch your hands, you take your purse back up and put it on your shoulder. >> hoda thought it through. >> and then, yes. >> and sometimes i do that with my luggage, when i have a wheelie bag. how do i get the wheelie bag over to the sink. you have to hold it and drag it and clean it. >> did you look at my purse? did anyone look in it? >> jimmy hoffa is in your purse, they've looked everywhere for him except for in your purse. you never wash the bowling ball in there. >> you're right. >> the drama, catfights, the new season of "the real housewives of new jersey." we'll put them to the test. and our makeover team ambush two deserving women on the plaza, next.
